Description & Technical information

Amongst Montmartre painters, Maurice Utrillo was one of the few to be born on the Butte, at 8 rue du Poteau. Son of Suzanne Valadon, who was a painter and a model herself, he dedicated the majority of his work to the representation of Paris.
Our oil on panel depicts a view of the mythical Moulin de la Galette, which hosted in the 19th century a popular "guinguette" where the "tout-Paris" loved to gather. Utrillo
painted several variations of this subject ; our work seems to have been painted during the "colourful period" of the artist, from the 1920's to the 1950's.
